Metro have Liverpool fans putting their pints down and looking towards our landlord here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication claims that the Reds are closing in on a move for Marek Hamsik.
The Napoli star has been expressing some serious doubts over his future in Serie A and it seems that after his latest comments, not only will Brendan Rodgers be quietly confident of landing his man but Napoli may well be willing to cash in on the Slovakian international.
He claimed: “I am happy here but in football you never know,” and as our landlord points out whilst taking a tray of pints over to our punters playing pool, we think that is cryptic at best.
The Reds are hoping to not only make their mark in the Champions League this season but also win the title and a January swoop for a player of Hamsik’s quality would go a long way to securing that.
Liverpool fans. Do you think that Hamsik will be arriving in January? How much would you pay for the player? Could he replace Gerrard? Let us know your thoughts below.
